January 28,2024 in Toronto at Huculak Centre the most active volunteers and participants of Etobicoke organizations were awarded YVAN BAKER,MP for Etobicoke Centre,former MPP&BCG consultant.

I had the honor of being selected and awarded as an active member of the organization IOUC FOURTH WAVE .It is pride to stand among the awarded and receive an Awards from the hands of YVAN BAKER.

My awards for the Annual Community Recognation Awards nomination include not only scripts and the creation of video content, but also the popularization of the Ukrainian community beyond its borders, among Canadians and the organization and holding of an exhibition that united the Ukrainian community with other Canadian communities.

The past year was multifaceted in this regard, there were many events, I got to know our Ukrainian diaspora better, I spent all my time organizing events to make them as interesting and useful as possible for the diaspora.

Of course, this is volunteer work, which takes a lot of time from my main job and from my family. And I will never give it away time ago.
But the year has passed, it is closed, awards have been received and I hope, having received a great experience, there will be new events this year.
After all, I got to know an enormous number of people and we became closer and already have many new plans for new events.

I am pleased to announce that last week the opening of an exhibition January 18,2024 in Toronto was a success, where two of my works in the Petrykivka style were presented among the works. The exhibition was organized by Art Etobicoke, together with QuardReal and Art Council Toronto. The exhibition shows the winners of the competition, immigrants from Europe, and is called ROOTS. A lot of information about the exhibition, which will take place for a month(up to February 22,2024), is published on the city’s websites. I would like to say that the atmosphere of the exhibition was wonderful and meeting with creative people is always a great success:LORETTA FAVERI,CHRISTINA YARMOL,ALEXANDRA IORGU,FRANCESCO BORI,DARIA BEER,VLADIMIR TOPAL,DANA SEWELL,SZENDE TUNDERLIGETI and me,HELEN POLISHUK.

Two of my works were selected from Petrykivka, which I exhibited for the first time for a Canadian audience.

Petrykivka,winner jury competition

It so happened that upon arrival in Canada, I again began to draw and create my own paintings. I painted to order, signed up for competitions, paid for them and received adrenaline, supported and I went to exhibitions of other artists and realized that I was drawn inside to painting flowers in tradition ukrainian style, from which my artistic creativity began. So I returned to painting Petrykivka. The first paintings were made with oil paint, this had difficulties, since in winter they did not dry well. But I continued to create and collected separately, as a collection. So, depending on the year, sometimes 4, and sometimes 10 Petrykivka came out a year.

Not a single one of the paintings I created repeated the second. And the society of Ukrainian artists, the creators of Petrykivka, inspired me .I even took a course from them then and practiced with an outstanding artist, Galuna Nazarenko, to whom I am very grateful for her mentorship. I was so captivated by this skill that I continued to create it, despite other competitions. And I did it without much advertising. So Somewhere in 2020, I already collected about 50 works and I opened my website on Facebook,


which was called CanadaPetrykivka. (This is my answer to some why I put such a hashtag). Last year, in 2023 ,I decided to exhibit my works at the ROOTS competition, I sent 5 arts and 2 won and are presented in the gallery QUARDREAL at Cloverdale Mall, Etobicoke. This kind of interesting news happens to people who create a lot and love creativity very much.Today both works are presented for viewing and for sale.

I continue to work and, already inspired by the opening of the exhibition and meeting creative people like me, a new work has already been created, which I will undoubtedly publish in the next post.
And for my admirers and envious people, I offer you this tea.

This tea contains mint and helps you relax and not care about the troubles that happen. This winter tea is called WINTER EDITION HIVERNALE and is sold in our supermarkets in winter and helps to get what you want from the impersonality of unforeseen problems.

Let’s drink tea and relax

Happy New Year

I’m glad to announce that the site was updated after the site crashed and I can again publish my news and talk about my work.

If before the crash of the site I wanted to inform you about some of my news, then you gave me so much power that I’ll just bombard you with news .

And thank you for learning how to kill information on my site. Don’t think that training only teaches you. Here such strength grows from such problems, you only make us professionals and experienced erudite specialists.

I won’t write where it came from, I already know that. By the way, here’s another interesting example for today. It turns out that flash drives created in China also have an expiration date. And there are specialists who can restore them.

If such an attack had not happened and the virus had not touched the flash drive with very important information, then I would not have become so experienced. It turns out that there are now viruses that know the drivers of flash drives created in China. Especially… hmm… old ones.

And if working for them, downloading a picture from the Internet, for example, a virus gets in, it attacks the flash drive driver and the flash drive stops working. The flash drive, not the documents. The documents remain intact.

And the hackers have data about the flash drives. For example, Lexor as in the photo.

Photo where I show you my lasy work ,,Funny city” ?more you can find on fb:Helenpolishuk.com when I spaek with lot of bots))

In order to open a flash drive and leave the information on it intact, you need to change the driver of the flash drive, and for this you need to know the old driver. This information is not publicly available. So, be careful, my dears, and if you are working on some kind of document before you have completed the work, do not transfer the data to the archive disk, otherwise it will be an ass. Happy New Year everyone! Happy Chinese New Year! Fantasize, create problems. How can we live without them?
